Juventus have confirmed that they have no intention of parting company with striker Carlos Tevez at the end of the campaign.
The forward is being linked with a return to his homeland. He has already mentioned on several occasions that he would like to return to Argentine football when he is still at the top of the game. Tevez is clearly enjoying the best football of his career. The 31-year-old has scored goals and created two more in his last 10 matches for Juventus. This has helped the Italian club open a nine-point advantage over second placed to Roma, while also putting one foot in the Champions League quarter-finals.
The club’s general manager,Beppe Marotta, says that the club are still confident of keeping Tevez for a few more years. Boca Juniors are thought to be interested in making an offer in the summer, but Marotta says that they might even offer Tevez a new deal in order to convince him to stay at Turin. After struggling with their search for a goal scorer, Juventus have finally been rescued by Tevez. The club will now be hoping to achieve an impressive Champions League run backed by the good form of the former West Ham striker.Continue reading

According to Brendan Rodgers, the Liverpool manager, Luis Suarez deserves to be considered for Ballon d’Or for his performance as a Liverpool player in the last season.
Suarez scored 31 goals for Liverpool due to which the team was able to secure second place in the competition. Suarez scored the most number of goals in the league. According to Rodgers, Suarez undoubtedly deserves a place among the top players. Regarding Suarez’s name not being on the list of players shortlisted for the Ballon d’Or Award, Rodger said that he fails to understand why Suarez’s name was not included on the list.
Rodgers doesn’t consider excluding Suarez from the list to be just. He thinks that if the list was made according to the merit of footballers then Suarez definitely deserves to be included in it. Suarez might have been excluded from the list for biting Chiellini in the 2014 world cup; he was suspended for four months after the incident. But Rodgers thinks that the players being considered for the award surely committed some minor offences in their career but the judgment should be made solely on the basis of football and nothing else.
Rodgers considers Suarez being awarded player of the year title for the last season in England to be a just treatment. He said that Suarez got the award for the quality of football he plays and further added that Suarez is definitely among the top five football players in the world. Liverpool will be pitted against Real Madrid again on Tuesday

Rodgers considers Ronaldo to be a very talented footballer. Rodgers said that it gives him great pleasure to witness someone as talented as Ronaldo. He said that Ronaldo’s accomplishments are due in large part to the immense effort he puts in training.
